Bonny Blog Award

Gemma Coumbe, Gardenia Pepworth and Helen Williams all awarded me with this blog award ages ago and I've been really slack in blogging it!  So I'd like to say a big thankyou to Gemma, Gardenia and Helen!  I really appreciate it!

This is what I have to do now!
  1. Put the Swap Sisters Bonny Blog Award on my blog.
  2. Share 5 things about myself.
  3. Pass the award onto 5 other Bonny Blogs.
  4. Add links to my 5 chosen Bonny Blog Winners.
  5. Let them know they have been chosen to win the Swap Sisters Bonny Blog Award by leaving a comment on their blog.

  About Me...
  1. My name is usually shortened to Dan, which I'm fine with, but Danni just rubs me the wrong way...
  2. I joined Stampin' Up! in February 2009, and I only joined to get the free stamp set on offer as a recruiting incentive!  I didn't think anyone would actually want a workshop with me!
  3. Fame doesn't interest me, but secretly I like to imagine that somewhere, someone has looked at my blog and thought "Wow, I wonder what she's like in real life..."  LOL
  4. I often forget to send people cards... how bad is that for a cardmaker??
  5. I cry in movies - LOTS.  One of my favourites, Awakenings, really gets me - I usually start crying during the opening credits!!

Five More Bonny Blogs
These lovely ladies all inspire me in a wonderful way.  It sounds strange, but each of these crafters regularly has me thinking: "Oh, man!  I'll never be that good!!"... BUT that turns into me feeling all inspired despite the self doubt.  So thank you all for helping to push me a little!

  1. Oh my, thanks you SO much Danielle!!! :D
    I feel so tickled pink... *huge grin*
    I enjoyed reading about you so much! I think hoarding cards is very typical amongst us, riddle me this... lol
    I cry at movies too, and must check that film!
    Oh, and most importantly... I DO wonder what you're like in real life :)
    Take care, and thanks again! xxx

  2. LOL! You make me laugh Danielle! I love your stuff and I'm wondering why I cannot make those simple but downright absolutely gorgeous cards you do on one layer.
    I have definately wanted to know what you're like in real life......remember I was hoping to meet you at convention this year! Oh well! We still have next year!
    Thanks for the award!

  3. LOL DD you are so funny! I forget to do cards too. Sadly since I joined SU I have only made one card for my kids (and there are three of them and they have all had birthdays) and seeing as you forget to send cards can I feel less bad about not getting a card to you for your birthday?
    I look at your blog and think about what you are like in real life all the time....if anyone is famous its our dear DD from JAI.

  4. Duh, you know we all want to meet you in real life! Then we won't have to wonder :)

  5. How gorgeous are you! Absolutely of course we all want to meet you in real life! Keep telling you that you're famous lol.

    Thank you for the award - I'm in such good company too, how special.


  6. oh you are gorgeous Danielle thanks so much for the award and I take my hat off to you inspire me with every card you make.
